Official description
The second Metroid game, developed from the ground-up for Nintendo's black & white handheld, takes place some time after the NES original. Samus flies to the home planet of the Metroids, SR-388, an unstable place racked by earthquakes and torrents of lava. Many powerful breeds of Metroid thrive here and in the cavers below the surface. Samus roots them all out, eventually destroying the Metroid Queen. A baby Metroid hatches immediately after the battle and imprints upon Samus. Thinking Samus is her mother, it helps her escape. Samus then turns the hatch-ling over to the Galactic Federation, thinking that researching it might prove fruitful. Gameplay itself is classic side-scrolling, shooting, and puzzle solving, with plenty of alien encounters.

The predecessor of maybe the best platform game of all time, Super Metroid (Metroid 3) for Super Nintendo. This game is as good as it gets on handheld.
With unparalleled atmosphere and ambience plus top-notch gameplay (including action and puzzle areas), it will test every competent gamer's skills.
If you own a GB* unit and have not played this game - get it. It's a timeless masterpiece.

An excellent sequel to the king of non-linear games. Metroid II takes the original one step further by adding new items, like the wall-crawling Spider Ball, and introducing the evolutionary life cycle of the Metroid species. The world is huge, and there are numerous secret areas for the player to discover. Any fans of the NES version will likely enjoy this one.
